For me, breakfast is very important. I believe a healthy breakfast gets your body started and gets the brain fueled as well. This is why I always take the time in the morning to have a decent breakfast (and because I simply wake up hungry). Personally, I love oatmeal for breakfast, because you can flavor it with loads of things and you can add almost everything as a topping. Usually I put any kind of fruit on top and sometimes extras like nuts or chocolate. Lately I discovered something new in my local Albert Heijn, called ‘Tijd voor Ontbijt‘. Tijd voor Ontbijt sells different kinds of mixes with nuts, dried fruit and superfoods to add to your yoghurt, muesli, or in my case oatmeal.
Superfoods seem to be the food hype that is currently going on. A lot of people added these food items to their diet in the last few years. You can buy them everywhere now, even at stores that normally don’t sell groceries, but they are quite expensive. Are they worth their price? Are they really that beneficial to your body or is it all just a marketing trick to make people buy these products. Do you really need to add them to your diet or are the regular healthy food items enough. I did some research on the internet about this and I would like to share my findings with you.
